Here's a thread that I started about this on another message board 13 years ago:

This guy does a fantastic job explaining why the Katy Perry vs. Flame trial outcome was terrible



I like how he demonstrates that what Marcus Gray (Flame) claims was stolen by Katy Perry has actually been a part of a lot of music for a very long time.

Checking online, Already Gone and Halo not only came out about the same time, they share the same co-writer/producer - Ryan Tedder ( OneRepublic front-man and writer of the amazing song Bleeding Love). I think Clarkson's claim that he gave the same music track to both she and Beyonce to write songs to is entirely plausible. And since both records were made at the same time, nobody could stop or fix it. That's pretty shitty and I totally believe that's what happened here.

No question it was a terrible decision. I think the Blurred Lines was as well. As if playing a high hat is all that takes to be considered plagiarism these days. It's a bummer that non-melodic elements are now the sole basis for infringement lawsuits.
There was another bullshit lawsuit with that awful Owl City/ Carly Rae Jepsen song too, right? How did that one turn out?

Glenn Frey rips off the melody of his own song.

Skip to 3:03

He said, call the doctor. I think I'm gonna crash.

The doctor say he's comin', but you gotta pay him cash.



Skip to 2:16

Don't matter if it's heroin, cocaine or hash,

You've got to carry weapons 'cause you always carry cash

LOL I should have examined that video more closely lol

That explains why there was no lawsuit.
